Works fine with perl-5.10.1
We would be proxying it via nginx; is that possible?
Not sure. I don’t think nginx has mod_perl capability, so you’ld have to
start by configuring the www/rt38 port to use fcgi capability, and work from
trying to run everything from FreeBSD ports, it looks like ports is
running 3.8.6 and they are up to 3.8.7, Makefile looks like there are
Uhhh… rt38 is one of the more complex ports out there. It also entails
quite a big rearrangement of the way RT is laid out on disk, so it’s not
necessarily trivial to update the port to provide version 3.8.7. If you
do update the port, please submit your changes via send-pr(1)
any other fbsd based ‘gotchas’ I would need to look out for?
Just the modified layout really, which you can soon get used to. Most
extension modules will adapt themselves to the FreeBSD RT layout pretty
well, so long as they can find RT.pm at configure time. Other than that,
it pretty much just works, and by using the ports to manage dependencies
you avoid various problems with incompatible perl modules that seem to
come up fairly regularly on this list.
